RE: Charles Reese and Eleanor McCoy Reese
Dear Shelly,

I would like to be able to directly connect your GG grandmother Eleanor (Reese) Lowery/Lowrey to her parents, but I can't do that from this end. (However, I have added some brief -- and hopefully correct -- information about the children of Charles and Eleanor (McCoy) Reese had together to her memorial page.)

In the *Family Links* section of Find a Grave memorials, there are fields that can be used by the person who created / manages the memorial to enter the father and / or mother. When the father and / or mother are connected, the *Children* heading then shows up on the parent's Find a Grave memorial.

At this point, you might want to contact Patricia Mechling who created the memorial for your GG grandmother. I doubt that she would mind connecting your GG grandmother to her parents.

It is pretty fun to wonder if our ancestors ever thought about their descendants to come several generations down the road . . . and they, no doubt, would be surprised to see how their memories are kept alive!

Your cousin Susan (also in California)

I added a photo of her marker. She is at Lakeside Cemetery, Folsom, CA along with her husband (I noticed you have her burial as being unknown).

Thank you so much for taking the photos of my Grandfather's grave marker. It is hard to believe it has been 60 years since his passing. I appreciate your taking the time to get these photos.

Thank you very much. This was a sweet gesture. I and others wanted Barbara to have a nice memorial page. You made it happen.

Great Job Mom
Hi Mom! I just wanted to let you know that as hard of a time that I give you about your dedication to this site, I do think it's cool that you are helping people. I know how much ancestry and family means to, I just wanted to let you know that I think you're doing something great. I love you...and as much as I complain, I promise I will keep riding with you to the cemetery to search for headstones. :)

I appreciate the pictures of Emma and John. I'm surprised at the way they stacked them like books. Never in my day in Ohio we do this. Thanks
